An official date and venue are yet to be confirmed, but AJ hinted June – the month coronavirus guidelines in the UK are planned to be ditched – is when the Battle of Britain will commence.

Joshua told JD: “June should be the date.

“Trust me. For the fans, for the people that have been calling it on for many, many months.

“Shoutout to Fury and his team as well, hungry go-getters, that’s what we are.

“UK stand up. And to the world – we’re bringing it. I can’t wait. Undisputed.”

SunSport understands a deal is set to be announced at the start of March and a non-disclosure agreement is keeping discussions top secret.

Saudi Arabia, which hosted AJ’s December 2019 rematch win over Andy Ruiz Jr, is leading the race to hold the fight.

But America, Qatar, Dubai, Singapore and China have all expressed their interest in hosting.

With the Covid-19 fall-out unlikely to let 90,000 fans back into Wembley stadium for a while, the UK has to hope to host the rematch of the planned two-fight rivalry.

Joshua, 31, won as recently as December, knocking out Kubrat Pulev, 39, in a mandatory defence in his local Wembley Arena.

But Fury, 32, last fought in February, when he dethroned Deontay Wilder, 35, meaning he goes into the biggest fight of his life with a 16 month layoff.
